when i started a new job while i was pregnant with Kale, i was about 6mo along but tried to hide it. when the interviewer asked me if i would need to be taking any planned leave anytime soon. i didn't want to lie to her so i said yes i was expecting a baby in about three months. that was actually no problem for her and i ended up getting the job! i have since left there lol but was releived that my pregnancy didn't have any bearing on getting or not getting.

i would say keep it honest because they appreciate that. employers may not be happy if in a few weeks your already inquiring about maternity leave. they can't legally turn you down JUST because you're pregnant anyway.
